Expect a decision on Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing’s possible move from Chevrolet to Ford by the end of this week.
Sources with the team say that Ford’s offer is better financially than what Chevrolet can provide, but that Jamie McMurray’s wins in this year’s Daytona 500, Brickyard 400 and Bank Of America 500 at Charlotte were due in large part to the dominance of Earnhardt-Childress Racing Engines.
“The offer is on the table, and it’s up to them whether or not to take it,” said a spokesperson for Ford Motor Company. “If this was a strict business decision, I think Chip (Ganassi) would make the move. But racers are a pretty loyal bunch. I honestly think it could go either way.”
